Tulips I planted last Fall have budded! The temps here in the 40's today with plenty of sunshine ~ felt refreshing. It's great to be alive!
For winter's rains and ruins are over,
And all the season of snows and sins,
The days dividing lover and lover,
The light that loses, the night that wins;
And time remembered is grief forgotten,
And frosts are slain and flowers begotten,
And in green underwood and clover,
Blossom by blossom the spring begins.
~ Algernon Charles Swinburne ~
